10 Wonderful Logos and Meaning Behind Them

Here are some beautiful logos along with the wonderful hidden meaning behind them, and few of them belong to popular brands and companies:

1. Federal Express Logo Meaning

I am not sure how many of you have noticed a hidden symbol in the Federal Express logo. Yes, I am talking about the ‘arrow’ that you can see between the E and the x in this logo. The arrow was introduced to underscore speed and precision, which are part of the positioning of the company.

2. SUN Microsystems Logo Meaning

The SUN Microsystems logo is a wonderful example of symmetry and order. It was a brilliant observation that the letters u and n while arranged adjacent to each other look a lot like the letter S in a perpendicular direction. Spectacular that is!

3. Apple Curry Logo Meaning

The above logo is for an editing studio. I like the way the logo attempts to convey what they do.

4. Families and Marriage Magazine Logos

The above two magazines are from Readers Digest publication. Again, the attempt to communicate what it is about quite figuratively through the logo catches my attention.

5. Rachel Hair Stylist Logo

I liked this logo of a hair stylist for the cheeky humor it brings to the (dressing) table.

6. Cluenetic Puzzle Game Logo Meaning

This was a logo created for a puzzle game called Cluenatic. This game involves unraveling four clues. The logo has the letters C, L, U and E arranged as a maze. And from a distance, the logo looks like a key.

7. Eight Logo

This logo created by Stylo Design is too good. For the name Eight, they have used a font in which each letter is a minor adaptation of the number 8.

8. Eighty-20 Consulting Company Logo Meaning

Eighty-20 is a small consulting company which does sophisticated financial modeling, as well as some solid database work. All their work is highly quantitative and relies on some serious computational power, and the logo is meant to convey it.

People first guess that 20% of the squares are darkened, but that turns out to be false after counting them. The trick is to view the dark squares as 1’s and the light squares as 0’s. Then the top line reads 1010000 and the bottom line reads 0010100, which represent 80 and 20 in binary.

Kinda like the surreal green screen of The Matrix, they want us to read stuff in binary!

9. IBM Internal Event Logo

IBM internal event logo

This was a logo designed in-house for some internal event at IBM. I like that they are quite relaxed about the logo, unlike certain other companies who do not like the logo to be tampered with in any way even for internal promotions.

10. Amazon Logo Meaning

Amazon logo

You might think the arrow does nothing here. But it says that amazon.com has everything from A to Z and it also represents the smile brought to the customers’ face. Wow, that’s quite deep!
